Having problems with your Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera ?

Ist Dl wont power up

\015 I have read others have had this issue. My camer will only so now battery power from time to time. This has happened ever since I got the camera. The store where I got it will just play with it untill it power up and keep telling me it is the batteris. It is NOT the batteries. It has gotten worse through the year. If you turn it off and on long enought you can get it to power up but it will shut back down. I feel there is a bad connection or chip. Can you give me an estimate what it would cost to fix this? The camera has hardly been used but is now out of guarantee.\015\012Thanks.\015

I would see if the manufacture warranty is still good and have them check it. Let them know that you went back to the place you bought it and had no help from them.
